SENIDR PICNIC 



The combination of a crisp but sunny Saturday, a large stretch of sandy beach, 
a group of lively companions made the Senior picnic a very successful excursion. The 
fresh salt air whipped up good appetites for the delicious lunch provided, and our 
after-lunch wading did nothing to dampen our spirits! All too soon a shower of rain 
made us take refuge in the busses, and we drove back to Abbot, full of memories of 
a great Senior picnic. „ fl

INTERVALE 




The wind whipping fresh snow against us, the 
skimming of skis on a slope, a fast turn and that 

exulted feeling or a tumble— we were at 

Intervale. A fireside and the relaxing companionship 
of "Pooh", burnt marshmallows and a feeling of con- 
tentment-Intervale— three days of fun and a united 
class. 




SENIDR PRDM 



With Gretchen Jordan as our chairman the prom weekend was 
a great success. On board the S. S. Abbot Saturday night we 
danced to the music of Georges Trudeau. On land, at the Sea 
Inn, we were surprised by an array of sea horses, ancient maps, 
and brightly colored fish. We were pleasantly entertained by the 
Peadquacs and the Blue Octave. We hated to see that last car 
pull away from the campus Sunday afternoon.

LOG 1951-1955 




In the year nineteen hundred and fifty-one, 
the S. S. Abbot left port with 26 aboard for a 
cruise through the Abbot years. During the 
first leg of our journey we sailed through rough 
waters and calm seas, experiencing many 
memorable events. Of course at this time we 
lived on the lowest deck, in compartment 
Abbey, traveling steerage and getting all rhe 
bumps. In living quarters such as ours we often 
had difficulties— such as the morning we awoke 
to find a flood which was caused by leaking 
accomodations. On weekends we looked for- 
ward to visits from the crew of the S. S. An- 
dover. Although our time was limited, we 
managed to dance a few hornpipes around 
the deck. 

After three months' shore leave, we returned 
to the S. S. Abbot with new crew members 
for another lap of our voyage. Some of us 
bunked in Abbey, the rest of us in Sherman 
and Homestead, on the tourist deck. Here we 
provided entertainment for the whole ship by 
producing The Tempest. Later, during the 
cruise, the deck-hands of Homestead provided 
us with a change from the usual galley "vit- 
tles." During the Spring of this year, the crew 
of Homestead started the epidemic of "sea- 
sickness" which spread from deck to deck. 
Recovering from the epidemic, we were able 
to hold several after-watch parties before end- 
ing this leg of our journey. 

Resuming our journey after another shore 
leave, our crew was increased by 17 new 
members on Second Compartment Draper. Our 
bumps from previous decks healed, we now 
sailed a smoother course. We celebrated at the 
bazaar this year the 125th Anniversary of the 



S. S. Abbot. Although it was held below deck, 
we came closer to our goal for the gym fund. 
With all good wishes for the departing mid- 
shipmen we bade them good-bye with our 
Commencement Play. 

To complete our crew, now quartered on 
First Deck, Compartment Draper, we added five 
midshipmen and sailed forth, gradually ap- 
proaching our last port. For the remembrance 
of all our wonderful years on board the S. S. 
Abbot, Miss Hearsey presented us with our 
rings. During Deck-Cleaning Week, while most 
of the swabbies were hard at work, we took 
a shore leave to Intervale. 
"Up to the snow slopes, 

The high and the low slopes, 
We hurried without delay. 

With help of instruction, 
We had no destruction, 

Though we fell most of the way!" 

Back on board ship, we held the S. S. Abbot 
Prom in March, with dates from surrounding 
ships. With permission for a shore leave we 
went to a near-by tavern, "The Sea Inn," for 
refreshments. Enterta-nment was provided by 
the S. S. Exeter "Peadquacs" and the "Blue 
Octave." 

During our last days on board ship, we 
docked at Ipswich for our last midshipmen pic- 
nic. The hot dogs and hamburgers from the 
galley were the best ever. 

We will never forget all our experiences on 
the S. S. Abbot, but the most memorable of all 
was graduation, June 6, 1955.— And now as 
we set out on the sea of lif°, we take w ; th us 
a rose and a diploma as symbols of our life 
aboard the S. S. Abbot.

WEATHER FORECAST 



After picking up my reservations for my 
approaching trip from Marcia Cooper, I hur- 
ried to the Ritz Carlton Hotel where I was 
greeted by Mary Minard, a prominent New 
York socialite, who was giving a Bon Voyage 
Party in my honor. I noticed Kathy Stirling pre- 
paring to take a picture and realized why, 
when with a bang Diane Sorota jumped from a 
huge cake in the middle of the room. She intro- 
duced the "Harmonious Hoosier Hicks," Marty 
Clark and Karen Olson, who sang their own 
rendition of "Casualties." Amidst resounding 
applause I felt I should leave in order to make 
the early boat the following morning. 

I was awakened by Nancy Johnson, who 
presented me with a cold ice pack and in- 
formed me that the boat was leaving in half 
an hour. Surprisingly enough, I made the boat, 
and the voyage was very calm except for a 
near collision with Betsy Beal and Sue McGuire, 
who were sailing in the Newport to Bermuda 
Race— and numerous interruptions by Jean 
Donovan's twelve children. 

The last night on shipboard we were enter- 
tained royally by the Draper Dreams, Gail 
Baldwin, Jeanne Skillin, Carroll Smith, and 
Dee Fleming, accompanied by Eleanor Easton 
on the keys. I was proud of these five Abbot 
girls who had just hit the million mark with 
their newest record. 

Arriving in London the following day, I hopp- 
ed a bus with Betsy Elliot as its guide. While 
in one of the poorer sections, whom should I 
see but Pam Carpenter conducting a sidewalk 
class in Spanish for the Cockneys. Heading in 
the other direction, I found Dee Duryee prac- 
ticing the organ in Westminster Abbey. The 
next stop was Scotland Yard, which I learned 
had Kathy Lloyd as its head. Being a great 
sports enthusiast, I traveled to Wimbledon to 
see Jolyne Fournier defend her title. Lorrie 
Gibbs was the timekeeper. 

Since Scotland was so near, I put aside a 
day for a visit. There I was flabbergasted to 
see Libby Baldwin, at 250 pounds, the chief 
bouncer of Beth Chandler's School of Atlanta 
Bop for all Highland Flingers. Marlena Comas 
was keeping the customers happy with Bacardi 
Rum. 

After this exciting day in Scotland I took a 
clipper to Switzerland, making a fast stop in 
Sweden to hear Anne English sing. She is said 
to have taken Jenny Lind's place in inter- 
national fame, and I can well believe it. 

Reaching Switzerland, I immediately went to 
the Alps where I was greeted by Nancy East- 
ham of the Swiss Ski Patrol and was later 
instructed by Mary Earhart and Mary Ann 
Yudicky in their famous ski school. 

With no broken bones, I arrived in Rome 
just in time to see Lyn Gardner in the opening 
of The Barber of Seville. I met Debbie Green 



during the intermission and found that she was 
redoing the Sistine Chapel. We were suddenly 
interrupted by Juli Morelli; who was selling 
her scrumptious Submarine Sandwiches. 

The next day I decided to check up on the 
Kremlin and its new faction, Clarkism, insti- 
gated by Ann Clark. I also found that Cookie 
Holden was taking inventory on the newly- 
introduced social activities. 

Tiring of the cold climate, I went to India 
where I met Carol Straton, who told me that 
she was Gretchen Jordan's secretary, Getchen 
being Nehru's famed psychoanalyst. I also ran 
into Judy Carpenter, who was engaged in 
charming snakes with her magic trumpet. 

After a quick trip to Siam, where I saw 
Sheryl Wormley, the renowned Siamese dan- 
cer, and Louise Stephenson training cats, I 
flew to Africa, where I bumped into Ann 
Kittredge working on an important excavation. 
She and Joan Lamprey, who was the entomol- 
ogist in the group, took me to the place where 
Jane Kent was teaching the natives to figure 
skate. 

From there I took the next boat to Spain 
and hurried to the bullfights. Liz Oppmann was 
the star toreador, and between the fights I 
enjoyed the entertainment of Mariby Burrowes 
and Heidi Angevine on guitars. 

On the way to Holland I picked up a paper 
and read of a teachers' convention, where 
two of the main speakers were Sally Watrous, 
teacher of agriculture in the Belgian Congo, 
and Chris Maynard, professor of mathematics 
at Heidelberg. 

In Holland Sue Davis, who was the chief 
operator of a windmill, told me of Lee 
Smissaert's latest book on the psychology be- 
hind the raising of tulips. 

Needing a little relaxation, I journeyed 
down to the Riviera and stayed at a hotel 
managed very successfully by Sue Blake. I ran 
into Nicky Knox in the lobby, who told me that 
she was now Aly Khan's stable-boy. I then 
went to Sue Appleton's School of Charleston. 
I was driven to Paris by Alice Lawrence who 
was entered in the Monte Carlo-to-Paris sports 
car race. I was greeted there by Sta*x Best, 
the Ambassador to France. Seeing the sights of 
Paris, I arrived at Montmartre, where I bumped 
into Louise Bell selling his paintings. Also 
there was Ann Cleveland with her French 
Poodles with whom she was touring the con- 
tinent. Back at my hotel I ran into Peggins 
Holbrook with another exotic hairdo; she had 
just come from the establishment of Tucky 
Munroe, the famous coiffeuse. She told me of 
Sally Graf's plans for an Abbot reunion of the 
Class of 1955 to be held on its 25th anniver- 
sary in the Sahara Desert. On that note I left 
to prepare to meet all my old acquaintances 
once again.

SENIDR-MIDS 



One Day Emmet and I took a Tripp on our Boat, the S. S. Senior-mid. As we went 
Glidden over the Waterous, the Rays of the sun Pearced the clouds, and we Hurd the 
Mary Caroling Pheobe Birds singing in a nearby Fenn. Swiftly we Chased the Whitecaps 
out to sea, but a Gail blew up and Knoxed our ship about. Emmet and I Kauered in a 
corner, our MacKinnontoshes pulled around us to Ward off the rain which was Pelton 
in our faces. A Minor difficulty, caused by the storm, forced us to use our Orrs, and we 
soon decided to Turner around. On the distant Harrison we saw Anne island, and 1 Syd 
to Emmet: "We'd better head for the Eubanks." 

We jumped into our lifeboat and quickly started for shore. Before reaching the 
Sandy beach, where we Moored our dinghy, we passed through a clump of Reeds. 
Emmet Luped the painter around a Peg which he found stuck in the sand. 

As we Marilyn walked along, Emmet exclaimed, "My legs feel rather Twombly 
from being on the boat so long — let's Lele down." "No," I said, "we must explore the 
island in the hope of finding either a Holbrook or a Well." Soon Emmet, with his viVidi 
imagination, thought he heard a Hipplepotomus in the brush, but it proved to be a 
Woolvie drinking from a small stream. He proved to be too Peppy for us, however, and 
disappeared from our sight. 

Being hungry, due to the brisk January weather, we proceeded to Prial open, 
our Wickham lunch basket. Emmet said, "On your Mar-go" and we ravenously devoured 
the food. 

Suddenly a Warren came riding up on his Graceful Morgan horse and 
proceeded to Sue us. He then showed us the no trespassing sign on the Barb-wire fence, 
and by this time, his Roth and Kemper were aroused. We quickly left the island after 
paying the Dowlin and all Linded a hand to the oars. The crew Nanced with joy when 
we reached the deck and thus ended our GOIiver's travel.

JUNIDRS 



Eight months and six days ago, the faculty and upperclassmen were blessed with the 
arrival of a new Junior class. This class was composed of new and old girls of different 
shapes, sizes, and personalities, and dedicated to the task of upholding the work and 
"hacking" of Junior classes gone before. Our chief site has been Abbot campus. Other 
favorite sites have been Ford's, P. A., Middlesex, Exeter, Kent, and such scenic places. 
We have followed the lead of other Junior classes; we have our own familiar sayings, 
such as, "Oh Bliss," "Male Mail," "Come to the party after lights," "I dibbs the shower," 
and "Help me with my argyles"! We have been divided into four houses— Abbey, 
Sherman, Draper, and Homestead. We will not be remembered for this, but for our 
unity as a class. We highly resolve that in the future years, we will continue in this 
oneness of spirit!

PREPS 



We're the class of '58, 

We're the Preps, the class that's great. 

Whether we rise or whether we fall, 

No one can beat us, we're tops in all. 

To our teachers we're nothing but a pain in the neck. 

To our upperclassmen our future we'll wreck. 

We're disgracefully bad, but we always have fun, 

But can get down to work when there's work to be done. 

We're the lowest of low, yet the best of the best, 

Tho' each one's considered a miserable pest! 

Still, give us a chance, and we'll soon pull through. 

To the greatest of classes, Preps, here's to you!

Standing: P. Carpenter, M. A. Yudicky, B. Elliott, G. Jordan, S. Graf, B. 
Chandler. (Seated): D. Fleming, J. Skillin, L. Bell, M. Holdrook, A. Kittredge. 

Every girl at Abbot becomes a member of the Abbot School Government Association. 
In the association, each girl has a personal and definite part to play; whether as a 
Student Government representative, a proctor or a loyal supporter, she is indispensible 
to the smooth running of the school. 

Our Abbot colors are Blue and White; our motto — "Facem praetendit ardentum" — 
"she extends a burning torch". Through our attitude in this association, as well as all 
phases of school life, let us hold our colors high and strive to be true to our motto.

ABBOT CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION 



"The most potent forces in the world are not physical and material, but spiritual. 



Through chapel services, Vesper services, and other 
community projects, we of the Christian Association 
try to help in promoting Christian ideals and fellow- 
ship throughout the school. By making contributions 
to innumerable charitable organizations, we also try 
to spread a Christian spirit far beyond the boundaries 
of Abbot. We believe that Christianity is the key to 
life's door and is the true formula for successful and 
happy living.

FIDELID ACTIVITIES 



Once again musical interests at Abbot were continually 
displayed during the year through the accomplishments of 
the Fidelio Society. This organization, compossd of mem- 
bers belonging to the Senior and Senior-Mid classes, 
proved to be successful in developing an appreciation and 
enthusiasm for all types of choral music. Under the fine 
instruction of Miss Kate Frisian, many a merry tune was 
sung in the concert halls of places far and near. Two pro- 
grams were performed with the glee clubs of Exeter and 
St. Marks. Although the curtain now falls to mark the 
closing of the season as Fidelio sings its last note at grad- 
uation, wonderful memories linger in the minds of those 
who have participated in the activities of the group.

Will we ever look at a sailor again without remembering 
our Yearbook? We doubt it. It has been a part of every 
week and hour, and as the deadlines bore down upon us 
like a great whale (You see it can't be avoided), we 
headed straight into the wind and left our disagreements 
in our wake. When discussions rose high, we reefed our 
sails; with the help of Miss Cassidy we stayed on an even 
keel. Karen took the tiller with skill and cheerfulness, and 
the experience of bringing a yearbook into being will al- 
ways be remembered as a happy one.

Have you ever noticed an efficient girl rushing about on 
Wednesdays? That's "Cookie" Holden, Editor-in-chief of 
Courant. Courant is our school literary magazine, to which 
the whole school makes contributions. "Get them in by 
Monday!" is our watchword, and with gentle pressure from 
our Editor and wise guidance from our advisor, Miss 
Edmonds, we do manage to collect enough material for 
two issues a year. I'm sure the board will always have 
memories of sitting in the rarefied atmosphere of a small, 
stuffy room on the fourth floor of Draper with the geomet- 
ric patterns of pipes and sloping ceilings before our eyes, 
as we wait to be inspired or discuss the merits of someone 
else's work of art. Twice a year a small tornado of activity 
involves the editorial board, from which we emerge ink- 
stained, happy and proud of the fruit of our labors, an 
issue of Courant.

SENIOR DRAMA CLASS 



The Senior Drama Class is a new organiza- 
tion which has taken the place of the Abbot 
Dramatic Society of past years. It is made up 
of eighteen seniors who have expressed an 
interest in various phases of dramatics. Our 
first undertaking was the comedy "The Women 
Have Their Way," which was successful as well 
as fun. This year we chose to do "Pygmalion" 
by George Bernard Shaw. The acting and 
planning were done by the members of the 
class, and with the expert advice of Miss Hale 
it was an enriching experience which put the 
finishing touches on a v fine first year.

WORLD UNIVERSITY SERVICE 

"Sign on Stu-G. Board for W . U. 5." 

This is a familiar sign at Abbot. The school 
belongs to a world organization entitled the 
World University Service, which helps to 
build centers of academic research and fur- 
nish them with necessary supplies. The girls 
at Abbot are able to aid the less fortunate 
people of the world through this organiza- 
tion.

further in each girl interest in good sportsmanship and participa- 
tion in the many athletics offered here. This year the Council was 
pleased to welcome Miss Bowers, our new Physical Education 
instructor, and the new athletes to supplement the- seasoned 
"Gars" and "Grifs", all of whom contributed greatly to the suc- 
cess of our sports program.

ABBOT ATHLETICS 



This year was a wonderful one in the field of athletics 
and on the athletic fields. From the initiation in the fall, 
when the new girls became loyal to the orange or green 
standard, to the awarding of the shield at last chapel, 
great enthusiasm and sportsmanship were shown. Each girl, 
either as a player or a rooter, fought persistently to uphold 
the honored name of her team. Although only one team 
could win, both were skillfully guided by Sue and Betsy, 
the Gargoyle and Griffin captains.

GARGOYLES 



Once upon a time there was a place where girls lived, learned, 
athleticised and became model people. On certain days of the 
year known as Field Days, due to use of the fields, or Gym 
Meets, due to the meeting in the gym, the great orange and 
green forces met in deadly combat. On the green side of the 
combat area, a creature known cs Lister sported his green neck- 
tie and ogled a creature known as Sue. The deadly combat 
wasn't as deadly as most deadly combats are suspected of being, 
and afterwards green figures could still be seen walking around 
Andover and faithfully putting stamps into green boxes.

GRIFFINS 



Amid thousands of stamps, hundreds of walks, and the 
unspeakable confusion of the field days and the gym 
meet, the fate of the great orange team is determined. 
Whatever the outcome, the fighting has been fierce, the 
competition keen, and the spirit of the girls overpowering. 
With Betsy as our captain, Caesar our mascot, and Lyn 
our song leader, we can expect nothing but the best.

SPORTS

AT A GLANCE 



This sports year has been a thrilling one for all. In the autumn 
competition on the hockey and basketball courts was vigorous. 
The girls learned not only to shoot baskets and make goals skill- 
fully, but also to avoid taking spills in the mud. 

Then along came the cold weather and we took to body 
bends in modern dance and the touches in fencing, not to omit 
the monkey making in the gym classes. 

Of course we all looked forward to Spring when we could be 
outdoors again playing tennis, lacrosse, softball, and also taking 
track, archery, and riding, which were chosen by those girls 
who wanted to participate in two sports. 

And as all good things must come to an end, so did our sports 
season, leaving everyone with fond memories of spirited times.
